  1. Here's another option i have been considering. Just roll it out and trim it. http://www.bltllc.com/g-floor_main.htm?source=easyppc&gclid=COT2nsCa1KECFRMNDQod0nkn2Q

  3. Congrats! I put 10 grand down when i bought mine. Last April i ended up taking an unplanned early retirement so i went ahead and paid it off along with my wife's 06 GT. My house and cars are paid for now. It's a good feeling to be debt free. :happy feet:
  4. The scrolling isn't smooth like it use to be. It's jerky (for lack of a better word) on my computer for some reason.
  5. Obviously by hitting the car he was trying to be antagonistic to start with. I would have told him to keep his fkn hands off my property.
  6. Had it 2 years in Oct. and it has 2500 miles on it. I think i need to get out more.....
  7. Hm.. mines never done that. It sits in the garage without being started for as long as a month at times.
  8. A woman was applying for a job at a lemon orchard. The interviewer asked her how much experience she had picking lemons. She said well i have been thru three divorces, bought two Plymouth's and voted for Obama. Hows that for experience?
  9. You guys are taking this internet thing a little too serious...... :tease:
  10. Whoops! Missed this post. Disregard post #17
  11. Dat was funny.... I'm going to use that line on the next guitar buddy of mine that shows up to jam with a Mex Strat.
  12. What offends you about a few people saying the Mexican Strat's aren't as good as quality as the USA ones? If they were as good they would cost the same. Putting the Shelby GT edition aside for a moment, the fact of the matter is they are made with cheap labor and cheap materials. That's why they are in the $500 to $600 range new and a USA Strat is in the $1200.00 range new. It's a lower quality instrument with a lower price for beginners, or people who don't want to spend a grand or more, or who can't afford the higher end models. Just like any other product you have your choice of quality depending on what you want to spend. Taking an assembly line Mexican Strat, painting it a particular color scheme and putting someones name on it that has a lot recognition, then say we are going to only make 200 doesn't automatically make it a high quality guitar. It's marketing at it's best to the unsuspecting.
  13. If your going to collect you might as well collect the good stuff. I agree some collectors spend crazy money on limited production stuff. To me though, that doesn't make it something more than it really is. Whether it's limited production or not, it's of no use to me if the quality is poor and i won't use it for that reason. If i am going to pay that kind of money for a guitar it better almost play itself. If i want a wall hanger i can hang a poster of one up for a lot less money, then go enjoy playing a good guitar. I'm not trying to bust your chops. This is just my opinion. I have been playing for 40 years and have owned enough Strat's to know my around them. Having played music all these years i guess i feel the same way about my guitars as i do my cars. I am very picky and want the best quality for the money.
